Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances. Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions. Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others. Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our creator.
Written by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, Boundaries: When to Say Yes; How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life examines how conservative evangelical Christians should set and maintain proper boundaries - that is saying yes and no at the appropriate times, by examining how boundaries are presented in the Bible. Those who cannot say no live lives filled with unhappiness because people take advantage of them.
